He stated that his government will guarantee that there are no barriers to the sector’s development and that various reforms and policy measures have already been implemented to support its growth.

‘This is an illustration of how far the country can rise if policies are implemented correctly,’ he continued.

This is a new chapter in delivering contemporary farming facilities in the twenty-first century, and it will not only be a great milestone in the growth of the drone industry, but it will also offer up unlimited possibilities, he added.

‘Revolutionary change’ 

The prime minister stated that his administration did not waste time worrying about opening up the drone business, but instead trusted India’s youthful potential and proceeded with a fresh approach. He stated that his administration prioritized innovation and technology in the Budget and policy actions.

Noting that drones have a wide range of applications, Modi stated that they have been employed in the ‘Swamitva Yojana,’ which aims to create a record of land ownership in villages as well as deliver medicines and vaccines.
